Land Rover itself is quite popular amongst celebrities and the rich and famous in our country. Therefore, its not surprising that even Aditya owns one. Surprisingly Aditya’s Range Rover is also in the same colour as his BMW 3-Series GT in deep blue. The car made news in the recent past because it suffered multiple punctures due to bad Mumbai road conditions during traffic hours.

Toyota Land Cruiser

Toyota Land Cruiser is a popular choice amongst high end and people of position and power. This is because of the bulletproof reliability offered by the manufacturer. Because of this feature, the Land Cruiser becomes the first choice of many celebs. Apart from this, the Land Cruiser is an extremely adaptable car and can go through rough terrains easily. Raj Thackray has been spotted multiple times driving his old-generation Land Cruiser.
